The Body Scan Process

Software Tailoring offers several services for you to create custom clothing. The first step in all of these services is the Body Scan Package which includes the scan of your body from which you receive a printout of your measurements, including images of your body silhouette and the 3-dimensional representation of the body in a .obj file. The cost of the basic scan is:


Schedule your scan by calling our office (707) 978-4986.

The entire scan bill will be sent to you via Paypal. Once you have paid through Paypal, you will receive a confirmation email along with the PDF, "Getting Ready and Dressing for your Body Scan". Please read this document to understand what to wear for your scan. Feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.

On your appointment day, dress for your scan and then put on any additional outerwear you wish to travel in.

Our 3D scanning cameras measure the exposed surfaces of your body including the clothing you wear during the scan, so the less clothing you are wearing during the scanning the better. As outlined in our PDF guide, we recommend that women wear a bra similar to what you wear most often and underwear, pantyhose, or leggings. If you normally wear shapewear under your garments, you may prefer to wear it for the scan. Be sure to have something to keep your hair off of your neck and shoulders. A swim cap works well. DO NOT wear swimwear, it compresses the body, and can cause measurement errors! If you are unsure of what to wear you can bring several articles of clothing with you to try.



You arrive for your scheduled appointment

Our scanning technician will bring you to a private office with a curtained booth. We'll then close off the curtained area so you can undress to your scanning clothes. We will place stickers on your body to capture landmarks and certain measurements. The technician will then show you where to stand in the scanning booth. A harmless infrared depth scanner measures your body generating a 3D image of you. We take scans of you in 3 positions to ensure coverage in the underarm and crotch areas. Each scan takes about 30 seconds with 1-2 minutes of data processing.

We then review the scans with you

Check the scan results with hand measurements on landmark areas of the body so that you are comfortable with the results. When we are checking the hand measurements, you will still be in your undergarments but you will have privacy in the scanning booth. The entire scanning process takes 30 – 45 min.



You get dressed

A link to the measurements, silhouette and 3D representation will be emailed to you within 3 to 5 business days, the link will only remain active for 9 months.

The next step is up to you!
